the greatest Good Shepherd i have ever heard is on the Phil and Friends disc with Jorma and Steve Kimock. It is just amazing - the jam that Steve runs will make your eyes roll back into your head.

if you don't have it - i would be glad to send it to you man - it is THAT good - i bought it 7 years ago and still can't get enough of it. jawdropping

Mr. Wolf? nuh-uh, man. Only I can call Don Mr. Wolf! :)

I'm not sure I understand your question, Bryan, but I had the good fortune of seeing the Airplane and the Tuna several times (a few times both on the bill as tuna was kind of the Airplane's NRPS). I loved seeing the plane at the Fillmore East, but my favorite concert was in October, 1969, at Oberlin college in Ohio. The show was only two months after Woodstock and the band was riding high on Volunteers. Oberlin is one of those smallish Ivory Tower schools in the midwest--typical of the times--not far from Kent State.

The show took place in the gym on a makeshift stage--as if the Airplane were the band for the Fall dance (come to think of it, they WERE the band for the Fall dance!). They played a nice, long set, filled with classics and quite a bit from Volunteers. By the encore--Volunteers--the "stage" had ten times as many students dancing on it as there were members of the band. And the band loved it! They stretched out on the tune for a good twenty minutes--Jorma and Jack playing their classic licks until there was no sweat left to be sweatted.

Such a shame that they started to come apart at the seams so soon afterward (if they were already feuding by then, you wouldn't be able the tell by the way they acted, before, during, or in the wee hours after the show).

MISTER ghost-

Maybe I worded it vaguely, but it seems like you understood it clearly enough, because that's just the sort of anecdote I was hoping to read. What a high time, eh? I envy you for having been able to see them in all their legendary glory.

I'm familiar with Oberlin College. I went to OU in Athens, in another part of the big state of Ohio, then completed my degree in Cleveland. Many fond memories of Buckeye Land.

Mr. E:


O.U.--no bastion of hippiedom there. In fact, that is where Jorma lives these days, is it not?


Where did you finish in Cleveland?

Now that you mention it, Jorma's Fur Peace Ranch isn't too fur from Athens. Next county over, if I'm not mistaken.

I was an actor when I was a younger man and did my Equity Internship at the Cleveland Play House.

You know doubt know where Kenyon College is? That's my alma mater--if my hazy memory serves me well. 1969-1973. Then I lived in Cleveland from 73-76.

Beautiful state, once you get out of the cities.
